Sacred Cows Make Fine Burgers -The Protection Racket

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 09/24/2015 - 08:23.

 There have been several favored political stooges in the history of Northeast Ohio.  Surely, Russo and Dimora stand out - and, they operated with an understanding that they, too, were above exposure.  Mike White had his bagman, Nate Gray, who took the fall for him.  But, why does the media in Northeast Ohio protect Jim Rokakis and Gus Frangos (Gus is Lou's brother and partner and heads the "Land Bank")???

Epistemology.  How do you know what you know?  In the past, the print media controlled much of what we knew and our thought process on issues.  Has that changed with the Internet and citizen reporting?

VOTE Lanci for Mayor of Cleveland

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 11/02/2013 - 08:07.

 Hello Residents of the City of Cleveland - you do have a choice.  

Please rid us of the corrupt "it is what it is..." mentality.  Get RID of Frank Jackson and Martin Sweeney - vote for transparency and accountability (at least there is a promise of something-anything better than the STATUS QUO).

Essentially, this is what I emailed Sen. Brown, NSA collected it, no doubt, so it is not news

Submitted by Oldroser on Tue, 07/02/2013 - 17:04.

I am furious about what I read. How has our country changed so far, so fast, that this is happening? Our senators and representatives, as well as the government officials, and often the judges, are reprehensible. * * * * Quite some time ago, there were other whistleblowers about the extraordinary NSA surveillance and the immense building they are building in Utah to house it. I wrote you about it then and you said it had been forbidden. Well, they are doing it anyhow! What are you doing about it? Nothing I can see. I agree with those that ask for an investigation.

Is nothing made in US free from GMO?

 If this article is to be believed, very little. Unfortunately, it probably is at least mostly correct.

Luckily they don't have it here, as far as I can tell, in fact much that isn't listed as organic is still really organic per local articlles, and I cook and bake mostly from scratch. I bake much too large a batch for me and share with my neighbors. A young Texas systems engineer neighbor says he can tell.

Walk, ride and get out

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 12/16/2012 - 21:54.

Life goes on.  The city continues to move.  Yesterday,  it was sunny and warm.  I was able to take the train to University Circle, and to swim at CWRU.  And, then I walked along the empty bike lane that runs up Fairhill through the Doan Brook watershed.  Flags were at half-staff at the Baldwin Water Plant.  Shaker Square was decked out for the holidays.
